    Thanks for the previous comments (new ones always welcomed). Russ: Thanks for your question; it made me realize that the original picture gave me a claustrophobic feeling! I think the tiny patch of snow at the bottom drew my eyes down "to the dark side". Trevor & Gail: I cropped 16:9 to get rid of the dark side and the distracting patch of snow and I think that fixed it.

    Yes I believe this makes it seem more powerful. I agree with liz it does evoke emotion. I liked it before, now I like it even more.

    Hi Mick, "claustrophobic" is a wonderful insight. Sometimes you may want this feeling, but clearly not this time. Using "claustrophobic" as a guide, might I point out the heavy dark mass of the overhanging tree to the right also heightens "claustrophobic"? There's not much that can be done with this picture in that regard, but the knowledge will be useful for your next picture... and it's almost always easier to make your next picture better rather than beating on your last one. In any case, keep paying attention to the way you want your picture to feel, and how it actually feels - this is one of the best ways to break past the camera being just a recording device. cheers, Russ

    I certianly think this is a stronger/bolder statement now, Mick. There is not so much "distraction " for the viewer.

    I like it a lot! How would it work in monochrome?

    Tiny details. I'd like to see a bit of noise clean up and wonder how it would look if the foreground silhouettes were sharper?
